For the past 86 years, Remembrance Day has been observed at the 11th hour on the 11th day, of the 11th month across Canada. The day marks the armistice signed between the Allies of First World War, and the Germans, at Compiegne, France, ending a long and brutal war, from 1914-1918. The original name of this national holiday was Armistice Day and it was designated to fall on the Monday before Nov. 11 each year.
Nine weeks ago, 15-year-old Domitille Robert, from Avrille, in northwest France, got off a plane in Toronto and met her Espanola exchange-student family for the first time. Jeff and Tammy Sheppard and their two children, Kate and Quinn, were in Toronto to pick up Domitille on Aug. 26, and to welcome the young girl to Canada and to their home in Espanola. Being a host family for an exchange student from France was really a last-minute plan for the Sheppard family.
Espanola’s Boogie Mountain Ski Hill is beginning a new season with lots of changes that will challenge both young and old. From traditional downhill skiing, to snowboarding to freestyle jumping, Boogie Mountain will have it all. The ski hill is celebrating its 55th year thanks to volunteers over the past five decades, who have kept the ski hill a vital recreational spot, not only for Espanola ski enthusiasts, but for visitors from all over.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
